Lucy Maud Montgomery reading challenge 2018

My January always has a little more happiness in it because I can spend it with a kindred spirit of old. The L.M. Montgomery challenge is here again! (I didn't think the challenge would happen, but joy of joys, it is happening!)

Please, go read all about it on Carrie's blog.

  1. Oh, I really liked that novel! Very curious to hear your thoughts after you read it! And heh....this challenge almost DIDN'T happen this year...but for the kick in the pants someone else gave to me. All's well that ends well? :D

    1. Carrie, I'm so happy to be participating in the challenge again. I thought I was going to have to read Montgomery all by myself this January, but I'm sure glad somebody out there gave you the kick you needed. :)

    1. *snaps fingers* I've got the connection for you, Trix! If you read the description of the novel Maud (linked to above), the summary says that Montgomery idolizes Alcott as a writer. I don't know anymore than that... but there's something to start with! :D

  4. Thanks for your comment on my blog today. I haven't read any L. M. Montgomery books, is that scandalous? I have recently discovered D.E. Stevenson and love her books. Let's follow each other.

  5. Ha ha, I meant is it scandalous that I haven't read any of her books. Not that her books are scandalous. In case I wasn't clear.
